Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD) affects up to 2% of the world population, ranging from young children to adults. The disease causes severe distress and has a marked impact on the ability to study and work.
I investigate a range of cognitive processes (e.g., executive functioning, memory, decision-making) in adolescents suffering from OCD. The results of this study will contribute to a better understanding of OCD and eventually help to improve the diagnosis and treatment of the disorder.
